The Tear Collector

The Tear Collector - Patrick Jones I wanted to love this book. It has all the makings of a true masterpiece. A cliché(vampires) + hot, unexpected twist. But I must admit it went down with a flop. I don't like vampires, I mean I've read a few books about them and liked (some even love)them, but I was never obsess with the beings themselves. Anyhow, this "vampire family" don't feed with blood, but the sorrow and sadness of people.And although I expected to be mesmerize with this intriguing tale, it never did. It was cliché after cliché and I got to admit I barely got half way. Warning: I don't know the next can be count as spoilers, I personally think not, but I think I should warn you.The reason I stopped altogether: the main character likes having boyfriends and then breaking their hearts so she can feed off them. So, she meets this guy and kisses him and thinks: "oh this guy needs some practice." And barely a page after she says she's falling for him without a serious explanation or any kind and/or progression of how her feelings got there.Anyway, I think it's clear what I thought about this book. I tried getting through it, but there's so many books out there and didn't think I could handle more of this one.
